Publisher's Summary

From the nationally best-selling author of Vespers and Widows comes a masterfully plotted, razor-sharp suspense novel. Detective Steve Carella is faced with a wealthy blonde sporting a beautiful body and two attempts on her life. Her stockbroker husband has hired protection for her, but nothing is as it seems in this thriller.

VERY Abridged!

The plot and subplots are interesting enough, the narrator is adequate, but this abridged version is nearly unintelligible. Characters are undeveloped, things happen within the story seemingly without explanation, and the drama ends before it begins all due to the poor abridgement of this novel--if you can find an unabridged version, it might be more worthwhile, otherwise, don't bother.
